First things first. I feel I owe you all a little explanation as to why I have been a little MIA lately. In case you missed my Instagram post, we are expecting a cute little baby this year! We are so excited to welcome a new addition to our family. Luckily, I haven’t been sick at all! I have just been SUPER tired and get headaches all. the. time! Which have been wiping me out constantly. Cravings this pregnancy: cantaloupe, bananas, oranges, pizza and ice cream. I wanted to wait till the end of my first trimester to say anything, so now you know :)

Now onto today’s post. This Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Pie is seriously one of my favorite new pies. When it comes to a chocolate hazelnut spread, I can’t get enough of it! I eat it by the spoon when I think no one is watching ;) So why not create a pie centered around that kind of spread.

This pie is rich, creamy and tastes sensational. It is heavenly with my Homemade Oreo Crust. It just adds one more fantastic chocolate component to the already spectacular dessert.

If you are looking for the perfect treat to fulfill your chocolate craving, this one is easy and delicious! Give it a try! You will not regret it :)

    Is the oreo crust baked or not? Your recipe link is for a no bake crust.

    1. Chef in Training

    Oops! Made this yesterday for today's dessert. I didn't see the change in the amount of cream cheese until this morning. I thought it didn't look like enough filling so I folded in another cup of whipped cream. Hope it turns out okay. It looks good.
